There are different ways in which people choose to relax after a long, hard day. Whether it's with a good book or show, or a hot bath or some classic music, all have one thing in common: a beverage According to statistics dating back to 2015, America was the world's largest wine consumer, with an average of 38 million Americans consuming wine, making it one of the most highly consumed beverages.
Here are a few reasons why wine beats other forms of liquor.
Packed With Nutrients and Antioxidants
Simply put, wine is made from the fermentation of fruits, most commonly grapes. While most fruits have nutritional value, grapes possess a higher level of antioxidants.
During the wine-making process, the healthy nutrients and antioxidants present in fruits are then transferred to the wine, making it good for your body, when consumed moderately.
Studies have found that wine made by using Tempranillo red grapes, which are high in fiber, can help lower cholesterol levels.
By reducing cholesterol levels, wine also helps reduce the risk of heart diseases, high sugar levels, and blood pressure. So, if you struggle with high cholesterol levels, red wine in small quantities will help.
Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Wine also positively impacts your mental health by reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression. By decreasing brain activity, it exposes the body to a relaxing sensation.
So having a glass of wine at night will help relieve the stress of the day and help you get a good night's sleep.
Lower Alcohol Content
Compared to other forms of liquor such as rum, whiskey, vodka and tequila, wine has significantly lower alcohol content. This makes it less harmful compared to others, and slows down the intoxication process.
